Welcome to Home-Start Watford, Three Rivers & Hertsmere

Home-Start Watford & Three Rivers provides a service throughout the whole of Watford, Three Rivers and Hertsmere Districts in Hertfordshire.

Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births. That’s when parents need support.

That’s when Home-Start Watford, Three Rivers & Hertsmere can help. A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience, can visit regularly and offer emotional and practical support. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.

Please take a moment to browse through the pages of this website to find out more about our service, how to become a home-visiting volunteer or how you could offer your time by becoming a trustee of the charity.
